Ecosystems Respond to Climate Change Differently as the Seasons Pass

Scientists studying the effect of drought and heat waves on grass growth have found that it matters when during the year these events take place, and that each month yields a different effect. “A major challenge in studying climate change is separating the effects of long-term trends from interannual variation,” says Saran Twombly, program director for [...]
